I have a range of Aqua Sphere. I have 3 pairs of the Kayenne goggles, Vista mask and the Seal mask. Without doubt the Seal and Vista masks are larger profile.

I tried uploading a pic but it's too large for the forum. Hosted it here instead:

I've just ordered a pair of swedes for £6. Worth experimenting at that price.

Masks are better than the goggles.

I got these first before my mask. Then I sent them back because they were too tight. But I feel they are a fit between goggles and masks. They way you describe your situation, I think they might fit you.

I had these goggles first and on my face they often weren't tight. I've also a small face, but especially with goggles the form of the eye holes is more important than the rest of the face.
But the sight with my zoggs fusion air is better. I can't say it was a "panoramic view" with the Kayenne.

I think with goggles or masks, you always have to test yourself what fits, faces are shaped so differently that no one can tell which is tight without pinching.
